Under The Bed Slot
Under The Bed is a 5-reel, 30-pay line online slot from Betsoft. This is another superbly animated slot from the ‘3D’ slot pioneers. The theme reflects every small child’s worst nightmare: something slimy and nasty under the bed waiting to gobble them up as soon as they fall asleep. The ‘stars’ of this slot are a cast of nasties hoping to pray on a small boy (Jesse) and girl (Jane), who stand in the bottom right-hand corner of the screen with their heads bobbing up and down disconcertingly. Occasionally a beastie will pop out with malevolent intent, and the little darlings react accordingly.
The symbols used in the game are the monstrous stars themselves, and other menacing scenarios for a youngster, such as a window being left open, or lamp being switched off. To start the game you select the size of your coin from 0.02 to 0.05, the number of lines you want in play from one to thirty, and your bet per line from one to five. Your total bet is your coin size x pay lines in play x bet per line. Hit spin to set the reels in motion – and every time you do Jane gives a scary little shiver.
Payout & bonus rounds
The lowest payout is 25x your bet-per-line for three open windows. The biggest is for landing five of Jane, which wins 2,500x.
Some of the monster symbols have a golden rim around them. If you land a win containing a framed symbol, the symbol will flip to become wild. A number within the ‘wild’ symbol shows you have many spins the symbol will remain sticky for.
If you land three or more ‘Bed’ symbols anywhere on the reels you go through to the bonus game. Jesse and Jane are forced to fight off a handful of monsters in their deadly darkened room. If you land the ‘Mysterious Door’ symbol dead centre in the reels you unlock free spins mode. You are awarded a dozen free spins in the crazy monster bedroom.
All prizes (aside from in the ‘Bonus Round’ or ‘Free Spins’ mode) can be played for ‘double or quits’. You get to choose if the spinning dice at the bottom of the screen will land either odd or even, and if you choose wrong, you lose!
Under The Bed really is an fantastic game, in both looks and game-play. The animations are absolutely spot on – especially when Jesse stomps on a monster’s tail and gives a grin of triumph.
This game should delight most slots fans, even ones still afraid of what might slink out of their closet at night!
